Subsurface tile drainage from row-crop agricultural production systems has been identified as a major source of nitrate entering surface waters in the Mississippi River basin. Noncontrollable factors such as precipitation and mineralization of soil organic matter have a tremendous effect on drainage losses, nitrate concentrations, and nitrate loadings in(More)
The nitrogen sufficiency index (NSI) can be used for in-season variable rate management of nitrogen (N) fertilizer to maintain productivity of potato (Solanum tuberosum, L.) while reducing leaching losses. The objective of this study was to evaluate the implications of using high spatial resolution broad-band imagery for determining N prescriptions at(More)
Potato yield and quality are highly dependent on an adequate supply of water. In this study, 3 years of information from thermal and RGB images were collected to evaluate water status in potato fields. Irrigation experiments were conducted in commercial potato fields (Desiree; drippers). Two water-deficit scenarios were tested: a short-term water deficit(More)
